Try charcoal [In reply to] Can't Post

Try charcoal for a much quicker result! Just to get the feeling for light and shade.

With a pencil sketch it's too tempting to stop after you've drawn outlines of things and most of the paper is still white. But a good percentage (half?) of the page wants to be covered in marks, in order to give some depth and tone. With charcoal, that's much quicker and easier to acheive. And because it's less exact, you're forced to be looser and more "painterly".

And yes, it'd be great to see you on a sketching tour. And (thinking out loud) I'm sure Red Carpet tours will need my assistance on The Hobbit Premiere tour, sketching or not - but I'll still bring along my art kit....

Early posting [In reply to] Can't Post

You're welcome, absolutely, and it's my pleasure. I'm glad you've learned a few things.

As for posting before waking up, it's Monday morning now in New Zealand, so if you see some mitsakes creeping into my replies, you'll know I'm not quite awake yet either.... ;-)

Message from Doug Adams [In reply to] Can't Post

Doug Adams, musician, composer, writer and author of the upcoming book: The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films, (as well as good friend to many here), sends this message along:


Quote

Tolkien always stressed the importance of "home," the sanctuary and standard by which all our worldly exploits gain their resonance. Congratulations--and thank you-- to TheOneRing for providing fans that home for 10 years now!

My very best wishes to all,

-Doug Adams
Author, The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films

Welcome Quickbeam [In reply to] Can't Post

As usual your way with words are a delight and they warm the heart. I am very glad you are here to celebrate this occasion being you are a part of its rich history and helped bring to light many wonderful things.
It would be a delight for the next generation of TORnsibs to get to know you and i hope you will hang around for a ent age Hoom Hom!:).

SO.....what have you been doing all these years, Fangorn wanderer?Smile.

Thanks Elven [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks Elven! I just made another reply about the Middle-earth map YOU made - it looks wonderful! Well done!

I'm still hoping that a book might be possible too. Maybe the chance will come with The Hobbit - I'll try to get in early this time.

Red Carpet Tours are keen to run another Sketching Tour, probably next Autumn - I'll announce it on my website with plenty of advance warning.

I've started sussing out the calligraphy world (after working in a vacuum for years), so yes, classes and exhibitions are on the cards. I now edit the Calligraphers of Kapiti newsletter, and will run a small local workshop this year - and things will move onwards and upwards from there....

Greetings Doug! [In reply to] Can't Post

It is so nice to hear from you to help celebrate our founders and TORn.

I remember quite vividly the conference when you spoke with Tom Shippey. I have not be able to do that trip again being New Jersey is so far away.

The very best to you for the future. Cheers!

Well, I can offer these [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm going to assume Elven's okay with me doing this (it's a long reach from her arm to my head if it isn't) and I think she said she's lost some of these digital files so I may be the only one to have them.

I offered to host her footer images so I have quite a collection. I might have larger ones of these on my harddrive but I'm not finding anything I want today so I'll go with these.

These are all by Elven:

Clearing distraction [In reply to] Can't Post

I work at home, and my home is on a back section, down a long driveway, away from the street. It's quite a big property (by suburban standards) with many trees and lots of bush. So I have a quiet room, birdsong outside (especially the tui, a beautiful native bird with an INCREDIBLE vocabulary of sounds), hardly any street noise, trees everywhere I look - all in all, it's a pretty conducive environment for creating art.

My only distractions are self-imposed: having a coffee (I have a fantastic espresso machine), getting outside for some exercise, mowing the lawn, chopping firewood, cooking meals (I like to cook), etc.

As I said earlier, no day feels like a work day!

It comes in pints? Yes, I'd love one thanks! Looking forward to it already!

When you say spring, do you mean the southern hemisphere spring or the northern hemisphere? (Not that it matters - I'm just wondering whether it'll be six months before I get my pint, or a year! :-D )
